The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has warned that the alleged ongoing peace talks between the Fulani herdsmen and the farmers in Enugu state should not be allowed to jeopardize peace in the state.
This was made known on Friday, January 2023, via a press release signed by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary Comrade Emma Powerful.
According to the report, the IPOB affirmed that they have mapped out all the entry points by terrorists into Biafran territories, and emphatically maintained that something pragmatically urgent must be done to stop them from going forward.”
“We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wish to reiterate to the public and people of Enugu State that the Eha Amufu community must be free from the hands of Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen working in collaboration with the Nigeria Soldiers under the command of Major Umar Musa, COC 82 Division Enugu.
“We are reliably informed about the peace talks going on between some Enugu leaders and the janjaweed leaders regarding the massacres of Eha Amufu people by Fulani terrorists. As much as IPOB is for peaceful negotiations, we will never allow Fulani to take any part of Biafra’s land. We will not tolerate or allow any negotiation that will allow terrorist encroachment into our territory.
“The numerous kidnappings and killings by the Fulani terrorists and Nigeria government, especially their military, are to eliminate our innocent youths and blame it on IPOB family members. IPOB does not engage in nor condone any form of criminality or violence.
“What we want is peace in every community in Biafraland. We demand that the Fulani terrorist killers who murdered our people be brought to justice and never be allowed into our territories again, or we will deal with them in our way.
“We encourage Enugu State Indigenes to support those working towards restoring peace. But the peace talk must not in any way endanger our communities and people in the future. Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen must be prepared to vacate the Biafra land.
“Not now and not in the future will IPOB worldwide allow the Sokoto Caliphate or their terrorist foot soldiers to take over the Eha Amufu community and its assets as their own.
“IPOB has been working tirelessly to ensure that there is peace in our land. When we stop Fulani terrorists in one community, they move into another. We want the terrorists to understand that Biafra cannot use and contain them.
Irrespective of tacit support, the Fulani terrorists are getting from Nigeria Military and Police to humiliate Biafrans, the land of Biafra is for Biafrans alone and we shall continue to defend our land with our blood.
“The Fulani massacre in Eha Amufu community was masterminded by Nigeria Military and other security agents.”
Explaining further, IPOB stated, “we have mapped out all the entry points for terrorists into Biafran territories, and something must be done to stop them going forward. We are warning Nigeria Military to stop aiding Fulani terrorists whose agenda is to come, kill, destroy, and occupy.
“It is obvious that Nigeria’s military under Fulani oligarchy is an accomplice to the massacring of all Nigerians everywhere in their country, including Biafra land, as was stated by Former Chief of Defense of Nigeria, Theophilus Danjuma.
“Enugu State Governor, his government, and leaders in Enugu State must prevail on the Fulani terrorists to leave their land in peace to avoid further dangerous situations.
“Fulani terrorists nicknamed herdsmen are the fourth (4th) deadliest group in the world. They are plagues to anyone who tries to cohabit with them. Biafrans don’t want them in our land.
They must leave our land in peace, otherwise, in pieces.”
